Department of Paediatrics and Neonatology
Pediatrics & Neonatology is the specialty of medicine dealing with medical care of infants and children. Pediatrics differs from adult medicine in many respects. The smaller body of an infant or neonate is substantially different physiologically from that of an adult. Congenital defects, genetic variance, and a host of other issues are of greater concern to pediatricians and neonatologists than they often are to adult physicians.
Some diseases are more often treated by pediatricians because only recently did the majority of these patients survive into adulthood. Issues revolving around infectious diseases and immunizations are also dealt with by pediatricians. Put simply, treating a child is not like treating a miniature adult; it is this that pediatricians and neonatologists specialize in.
Childhood is the period of greatest growth, development and maturation of the various organ systems in the body. Years of training and experience, besides medical training, goes into recognizing the difference between normal variants and what is actually pathological.
